So if you haven’t heard of this before, you will need a few minutes to let this sink in. YES, it’s TOOTHPASTE. YES, it works as a DEODORANT! (I know! Weird! Cool! And refreshing in the pits, too!)I use a pea-size dab of Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste – the one with the blue logo – and most times I add an oil, like Purification 🙂 and split that between my two pits and it works really well. My son is SOoOoO impressed!
3. Propylene glycol: When this chemical is paired with other chemical additives, it can be extremely dangerous. This ingredient causes damage to the central nervous system, liver and heart. Even in small concentrations (2 percent or less), propylene glycol provokes skin irritation in those with sensitive skin. Moreover, some manufacturers have made deodorants with 50 percent propylene glycol content. Believe it or not, you’re likely to find this in many “natural” deodorants. (But the FDA says it’s safe!)
So, YES, I was very excited about this idea, and it worked great, but for me the excitement only lasted for a few days. Some people in my group were able to completely swap out our YL toothpaste for their deodorant. For me, by about the 3rd or 4th day it didn’t work as good anymore. I’d get sweaty, frustrated, and give up and go back to poison deodorant. :-/ Then I’d feel guilty, and at some point be inspired to give it another try and I end up using this concoction about 30% of the time. (That’s probably why I didn’t blog about it. Hah! Caught myself! On my own psychological couch!!)
But, the Young Living lifestyle not about guilt. Believe me when I say–negative emotions have REAL affects on our health, so celebrate if you end up using LESS poison commercial deodorant!Plus, we’re big fans of making small changes wherever possible and not pushing to go ‘100% natural’ in one fell swoop. That’s stressful, if not impossible. Therefore, sometimes I am skipping poison deodorant and using this instead and I am CELEBRATING that!! 🙂
And there’s more to the story…
I didn’t give up, I made more progress and I have more tips to share in the next few posts. You be ready to clean off ‘matter splatter’ when your minds blow after hearing what else I use as a natural alternative deodorant!
